May Favourites!

Guys, I am so far behind with my blog posts right now. I totally forgot to share my monthly posts for May with you! And it'd be a shame to skip them completely, 'cos May was a pretty awesome month. So, let's start this week off with a few of my favourite things from May.

May saw me, along with my mother-in-law and husband, take on Chrohns and Colitis's 10k WalkIT in Bristol. All to raise vital funds for Chrohns and Colitis's lifesaving research and support for sufferers. We raised a lot of money, which was what it was all about, but the huge sense of achievement I felt for completing the 10k walk was phenomenal. So many people, I later found out, didn't think I would do it. And when we reached the steepest slope I've ever laid eyes on, I almost gave up. But I persevered, and I did it. So proud of myself.

May-June Book Haul (Part 1)

Yep, you read that right. This is Part 1. Part 1 of 2. But possibly Part 1 of 3. Let's be honest, it's more likely to be Part 1 of 3. You all know how I am when it comes to buying books. Now, I promised my husband I wouldn't buy anymore books since he let me have another bookcase in the living room. But I've got around that, kind of, with pre-orders, books from friends and family, and buying lots of children's books. For our future kids, obvs. 

Reading OCD has gripped me hard the last six months or so and I haven't been able to figure out how to overcome it. But I think I'm finally on to a cure. I decided to retrain my brain by going right back to basics. I gathered all the kids books I already had in the house, and bought more, and started reading them. And it's working! I'm falling back in love with reading, and learning to be less of a perfectionist with it. So fingers crossed I'm on my way to beating this thing and I'll be back reading my crime thrillers in no time. 

And who knows, maybe all my brain needed was a break from all the dark and heavy stuff I tend to like to read? 

Anyway, here's Part 1 of my May-June Book Haul. Enjoy!

Haul Post!

Hai guys. I've another haul post for you today. I can tell you that these hauls come mostly from as far back as February. The Valentine's themed hauls kinda give it away. So enjoy this little look back at what I've been buying (sort of) recently.
